Paper Abstract

Three series of marine remote sensing satellite are plan in China for future. They are ocean color satellite series HY-1, dynamic satellite series HY-2 and comprehensive satellite series HY-3. The series HY-1 is designed to measure the ocean color and temperature environment with the visible and infrared sensor, such as COCTS and high spectrum resolution scanner. The series HY-2 is focused on the marine dynamic environment such as wind, wave and current by the altimeter, scatter meter, radiometer and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). The series HY-3 is planned to have comprehensive function what combines the series HY-1 and HY-2 using both of visible/infrared and microwave sensors. In this paper, first, the development of Chinese ocean remote sensing satellite in last ten years is introduced. Then the future generation of ocean remote sensing is described. Finally, the technique of data processing and application are suggested for the future ocean remote sensing in China.
